Hi Richard,

first thanks for all the useful pointers in the series.

Regarding terminology, I think the mismatch is throughout the code right?

So many of the existing "softmmu" files and directories should actually be 
called "system",
or "sysemu" to match include/sysemu right?

To me these distinctions are a bit unclear.
Maybe it would be good to have clear documentation about this in devel/ to use 
as a reference and end-goal,

and then we could do a pass of the whole code to fix the discrepancies in the 
use of the terms?
